Continuing the push for his upcoming solo debut Don Cusack In High Fidelity, Donwill of Tanya Morgan recently sat down with popular internet radio site Last.fm to talk about his upcoming album, his group efforts with Tanya Morgan, the importance of properly utilizing social media networks as an artist, and more. Opening the interview, Donwill offers insight on the relationship that has developed between Von Pea, Ilyas, and himself over the years. Having been together since 2006, Donwill explains the camaraderie and support system the three have built, even with friendly competition, saying, “Now that we have this total creative autonomy and space, we want to make sure to be pretty sensitive of the fact that we need each other at this point.” Back to his own music, Donwill wants people to understand the title, Don Cusack In High Fidelity, is more than just a title, it points to the theme ingrained throughout the entire album and the cult-classic film High Fidelity from which the album pulls inspiration. While some video content from the album in the future may stray slightly thematically in comparison to Don’s already released video for “Laura’s Song,” he plans to keep the High Fidelity theme incorporated in all of the album’s visual elements, as he prepares to release new videos in the near future. While Donwill covers his own career and upcoming projects throughout the interview, Donwill closes the interview offering advice for fellow artists as they engage fans and friends through social media. As an active member himself on social networks including Twitter and Facebook, closing the interview, Donwill speaks on the importance not only in being active on social networks, but how to best utilize social networks to reach and interact with friends and followers online.
